Applying artificial intelligence in data centres

Why is this gap important?

Demand for data centre services is expected to continue to grow strongly after 2020, and data centre energy use will continue to be largely determined by the pace of energy efficiency gains. While the continued shift to efficient cloud and hyperscale data centres will reduce the energy intensity of data centre services, applying artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning to tap further efficiency gains may become increasingly important.

Technology solutions

AI for data centre infrastructure management [TRL-8] can reduce the energy used by cooling infrastructure and power supply infrastructure.

AI for resource management [TRL-7] can improve servers workload optimisation, manage disk utilisation, and manage network congestion.
